# Question 6: Dates and times (short).

Question 6:

(DATES AND TIMES SHORT).

12/9/1496 21:37:48 2/3/6743 09:24:17

T^2 = A/B = 10^6 ms²

a. What are the whole numbers of the years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds between the two dates and times?

b. What is the value of y?

c. What are the magnitudes of T^1, T^-1 and T^-2?

d. What are the values of t, A and B?

a.

w = y – M/(365/31) = 6743 – 1496 – 1 = 5246

w = M – d/31 = 12 – 9 + 3 – 1 = 5

w = d – h/24 = 31 – 12 + 2 – 1 = 20

w = h – m/60 = 24 – 21 + 9 – 1 = 11

w = m – s/60 = 60 – 37 + 24 – 1 = 46

w = s – cs/100 = 60 – 48 + 17 = 29

Because there is no obvious consensus on precisely how many days are in month, that is 28 – 31, therefore, when we are using months, in order to get the months and days to match and corroborate we must state that we are using 31 days in a month, therefore, we are using conversion factor of 365/31 months in a year. However, you could use a different whole number (a number without a decimal) for the conversion factor (or the amount of days in a month) such as 365/30 = 73/6.

b.

s/60 = 29/60

m = w + s/60 = 46 + 29/60 = 2789/60

m/60 = (2789/60)/60 = 2789/3600

h = w + m/60 = 11 + 2789/3600 = 42389/3600

h/24 = (42389/3600)/24 = 42389/86400

d = w + h/24 = 20 + 42389/86400 = 1770389/86400

d/31 = (1770389/86400)/31 = 1770389/2678400

M = w + d/31 = 5 + 1770389/2678400 = 15162389/2678400

M/(365/31) = (15162389/2678400)/(365/31) = 15162389/31536000

y = w + M/(365/31) = 5246 + 15162389/31536000 = 165453018389/31536000

c.

T^1 = √(A/B) = 10^3 ms

T^-1 = √(B/A) = 10^-3 ks

T^-2 = B/A = 10^-6 ks²

d.

t = y × 31536000 = 1.65453018389 × 10^11 s

X = 1.65453018389

A = tT^1 = X × 10^11 × 10^3 = X × 10^14 ms

B = A/T^2 = X × 10^14 / 10^6 = X × 10^8 ks

Hand written example:  ## Author:Technical compassion.

Consider compassion, how can Australopithecus or Lower Palaeolithic man be compassionate toward animals, when they themselves were not yet masters of the animal kingdom or even worse still prey themselves? It is impossible, compassion simply did not exist. Compassion is technical, in that you must, for instance, first attain advanced weapons, technologies and infrastructure such as gunpowder, muskets, rifles, nuclear weapons, automobiles, militaries, police, emergency services, roads, buildings, bridges and skyscrapers etc before you can be compassionate toward animals. It is not a case of hey compassion for compassion’s sake like the Buddha. Compassion is not free of charge, it is a definite and tangible deal or bargain. Only now that I am invincibly safe and secure from wild animals in my city, town or fortress and surrounded by guns, and now that I have an overabundance and surplus of food, energy and resources etc can or will I be compassionate toward animals. It is like saying to ‘bear’ “I have a nuke now, therefore I am compassionate toward you.” This is something bear will never understand, in that it is ironic that once you attain nuclear weapons that you are therefore by definition compassionate toward animals. To reiterate, compassion is something technical, it is only attained through a collective effort, through taming the wild and through civilisation. You can only be compassionate once there is no competition.
